I stayed in the Kajzer Hostel for 5 nights with five friends in October 2016. We wanted a good but basic hotel within easy walking distance of the centre of Krakow. We booked this Hotel after seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed.
It's a family-run hotel. The owners are very helpful. Rooms very clean and nicely appointed with fridge, kettle, TV, great shower etc. We opted for the buffet breakfasts (25 zloty extra) - excellent and very good value: hot scrambled eggs & sausages, cold meats and cheeses, breads and buns, lovely cakes, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt etc. Just a 15 minute walk across the footbridge over the river and into the centre of town for the Castle etc. Beds very comfortable. My room had a lounge area and a balcony. Only slight negative is the noise from the passing trams at the front of the hotel - but the owners thoughtfully provide all guests with earplugs! The hotel arranged two trips for us: Aushwitz-Birkenau and the local Salt Mines. Pickup directly from the hotel - excellent. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk away from the Schindler Factory/Museum, which is very interesting. The hotel also provided transport to and from the Airport for 80 zloty each way.
The owners of the hotel patiently answered several email queries before we travelled. Our transport back to the Airport when we left was at 5am in the morning and arrangements were perfect.
This hotel is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for anyone staying in Krakow.
